"You were right. I can't be trusted around people."
"What does that make me? A stuffed potato?"
"I..." I close my mouth, unable to answer. She meant it as a joke. But I don't have it in me to laugh right now.
She shakes her head, sincerity glowing in her dark eyes. "You're not evil, Dylan."
Yes, I am. I turn away. She's going to try and convince me otherwise. I'm not listening to this.
"Wait," she says quickly. I pause and look back over my shoulder at her. "I'll prove it to you. I'll prove you're not evil."
